Dorm Decorations 2k17

I can’t believe the summer is already gone, but I’m excited to have moved into Gale (one of the upperclassmen dorms on campus) with five of my closest friends on campus. I’m living with the same girls I roomed with during my sophomore year. Our dorm for our junior year is a suite in Gale with six single rooms, a common room, bathroom, and kitchen. We also have a little balcony and our beds are lofted! It is our first time to have our own kitchen and balcony, so we are looking forward to cooking together and furnishing our balcony with plants.


Now that I’ve gotten the hang of college living, I’m hoping this will be my favorite dorm room yet. Here’s a random, unorganized list of things I brought with me to my new dorm room in Gale:

  1. My trusty microfridge
  2. Essential oil diffuser
  3. Shower basket
  4. Throw blanket
  5. Dish drying rack
  6. Gel pens
  7. Over-door hooks
  8. Cafetiere for coffee grounds & loose leaf tea
  9. Surge protector
  10. LED flameless candles
  11. Makeup mirror
  12. Laundry drying rack
  13. Mini speaker
  14. Cork board & push pins
  15. Weekly planner for 2017
  16. Bookends
  17. Commands hooks
  18. Fabric steamer
  19. Mini fan
  20. Lots of pillows
  21. Three reusable bottles: one for water, one for hot coffee/tea, one for iced coffee/tea
  22. Slippers
  23. Robe
  24. Rosie the Riveter poster
  25. Spikey, my little cactus
  26. Photos of friends and family!

What did you all bring with you to campus?
